Flyscreen wanted........
« on: September 17, 2008, 03:14:02 AM »
Kevin, I know you carry a flyscreen for the aluminum yoke option, but how about getting one for those of us who want to keep our caskett. I am going to try to make one using some handlebar windshield brackets and making a template from cardboard. Then I will take the template to the local plastics factory and have the shield cut. I would much rather buy one already made than have to do it myself. Thanks......Dewey.

I'll second that!  I'd like a fly screen for the regular casquette too--so I can put a movie cam behind it and not have to worry about getting the lens (expensive!!) boogered up with bugs. ;)

Yeah, it would be cool to have a little fly screen for the regular casquette.  Seeing the look of the one on Gordon May's bike got me thinking about it.



I have a small windshield that's detachable, but I'd consider leaving a smaller screen on all the time.

We need a flyscreen for standard  bikes! The Puig flyscreen (available in Europe only it seems) is perfect. You need to sell this or one like it please!

Hitchcock's has the best one I've seen and at a decent price. $15.00 shipping.
I looked for a Puig, but I couldn't find anyone who shipped to the US. And the mounting system was going to take some fiddling to work on my bike. There are a couple of others I looked at, but again, the mountings weren't optimal. they also left a gap at the bottom which I didn't care for.
The Hitchcock's comes with all the necessary hardware and is an easy mounting job. I did have to enlarge a couple of holes for the casquette screws, but that was it. It went right on.
Hitchcock has great service. It took about 8 days to get it.
